I've bought a ticket for HES 2011 in Paris, where I will meet some fellow spies.
It's now become completely certain that I am being followed. I used my sources in the Russian government and discovered that Nikolai is ex-KGB ! The guy who is following me around is Yamato Ryoichi, aka the Dot Slasher, an infamous assassin from the Japanese Yakuza.
At the HES conference, I need to pass the information on DFS to my colleagues, in case something happens to me.
